Enjoy Leisure Living in Jekyll Island Rentals -
When we visit our island home these days, we stay in one of the many Jekyll Island rentals. Don't get me wrong - the hotels are fine, but we just outgrew them.
We've been coming to Jekyll more or less regularly for over thirty years. As newly-weds, hotels were perfect. Then came our two rambunctious boys, and hotel rooms started to feel a little cramped.
So we checked out Jekyll Island's many rental properties. They range from duplexes to villas to single family homes, with a few apartments and town homes thrown in the mix. And their prices will complement any budget.
For us, the rentals were the perfect solution for our active, growing family. We think your family would enjoy them as much as ours.
Why? More space, for one thing. You can spread out, and your kids can have their own rooms. Even bring friends along.
The rental units have more toys - VCR's, DVD players, stereos, more TV's. Some come equipped with kayaks and bikes. They have grills and washers and dryers and books - all kinds of goodies to make your stay more enjoyable. And here's a secret - ask for a rental that has a pool sharing agreement with one of the hotels!
And if restaurant food starts to seem a bit tiresome (or threatens to bust your budget), the rentals have (yummy) fully equipped kitchens. Cook up your favorite seafood feast!
They're also quiet. If you stay in a home located in the island interior or fronting the marsh, you'll regularly spot deer, raccoons and squirrels picking their way through your yard as they go about their business. Chose an oceanfront rental, and walk out your back door and directly onto your own "private" beach.
All these amenities were there for us when our boys were young, and are still available in Jekyll Island rentals today.
Jekyll Island rentals come in several flavors. Oceanfront homes with spectacular views of the Atlantic are perfect for group getaways. Homes located in the island interior are quiet and relaxing while still within biking distance of anything on the island, including the Historic District and the Intra-coastal Waterway.
So take your pick. All homes on Jekyll Island have good locations, depending on what you're looking for.
We've stayed in some wonderful island interior homes. And don't forget Jekyll Island's best beach front cottage for families.
There are two realty companies on the island - Parker-Kaufman Realtors, and Jekyll Realty. We've always done business with Parker-Kaufman, and never been disappointed. They offer excellent service and really go out of their way to please.
We've never dealt with Jekyll Realty, but they must be good - they were the first realtors on Jekyll, and are still here, going strong.
You can rent or buy a condo at Villas by the Sea , a beautifully landscaped resort on Jekyll Island's north end. Explore Villas by the Sea for your perfect island resort experience.
